How Have Animals Adapted to the Rainforest?

Answer

Animal adaptations to the rainforest include strong limbs and prehensile tails for mammals that enable them to climb trees easily to access food sources. Birds in the rainforest have tiny wings that enable them to maneuver more easily around the trees. Gliders have adaptive skin membranes that enable them to glide between trees without the need of descending to the forest floor.

There are billions of species of mammals, insects, birds and reptiles found in tropical rainforests. About half of the entire world's animal species live in tropical rainforests. Some animals became much specialised. This means that they adapted to eating a specific plant or animal that few others eat. For example, parrots and toucans eat nuts, and developed big strong beaks to crack open the tough shells of Brazil nuts.
There are many different species of animals that live in rain forests and each of them have specialised way of adaptation. Some animals such as parrots and toucans have developed big strong beaks for cracking tough cells of nuts. Other animals such as the three toed sloth uses camouflage and an amazing slowness to escape their predators.
Animals in the rainforest are adapted differently. Birds have small wingspans to enable them to fly between the trees. As food is often at the tops of the trees, other animals have adapted strong arms and legs to help them climb. Some animals that live on the forest floor have developed camouflage to prevent them being seen by predators.
